Recycling Options

Use Small Blue Recycling Bins
You may continue to use your small blue bin. New or replacement blue bins are no longer provided by the city. Do not overfill bin. If loose items overflow bin, you can be cited for code violations.

Convert a Trash Can to a Recycling Can
When you recycle more, you’ll have less trash. Convert a trash can for recycling with a recycling sticker. The can must be no larger than 32 gallons and have a lid. Call 617-635-4500 or use our online form to request a sticker.
Request Recycling Sticker

Use A Large Recycling Cart
The Public Works Department is accepting requests for blue wheeled recycling carts. Carts will only be distributed to residential properties with six or less units. Limit one recycle cart per household. There is no charge for carts.

The Recycling Cart Request Service is temporarily suspended and will resume on Monday, March 3, 2014.

Note: The Public Works Department delivers most recycling carts within 2-4 weeks. When you receive your cart, please write your address on the white label on the front of the cart. The recycling collection vehicle may be unable to service carts on a small number of narrow streets in the city. After making your request, if your street is not serviceable, a Waste Reduction staff member will contact you.

Use Clear Plastic Bags (Select Neighborhoods Only)
For residents in Back Bay, Bay Village, Beacon Hill, Charlestown, Chinatown, Downtown, East Boston, Fenway, Mission Hill, North End, Roxbury, South Boston, South End, and West End.

Where can we recycle?

Does anyone know of transfer stations near Boston? We are a cooperative house affiliated with (and owned by) a university which recycles only paper, glass, and some plastics. The city won't provide us with pick-up recycling services because they say it's the university's responsibility. The university will hopefully expand its recycling in the future, but for now I feel terrible throwing in the trash all of our plastics and steel and cardboard. We generate way too many recyclables for it to be feasible to sneak it into blue boxes. Can anyone help us? Any ideas, suggestions, recommendations would be HUGELY appreciated
